Seun Kuti, an high-profile Afrobeat artist, has revealed on his social media page that he is facing threats to his life.
According to Kiti, some unknown people are plotting to “eliminate and assassinate” him for speaking the “truth.”
The Afrobeat star, in a video message on his Instagram page, said that he has been dealing with numerous court cases and police summons over the years. He added that he is waging many hidden “battles” by himself.
“I will reveal it here today,” the singer said. “They want silent me for this country.
“I can’t tell you how many wars I am fighting alone. I can’t tell you how many cases in court for nothing, how many police invitations left, right and centre for nothing. For just saying the truth, everybody is inviting the police on me.
“Because I am saying the truth, they are trying to destroy and kill me. They are trying to bring me down and destroy my name. It’s not easy. They have been silencing speakers of the truth since 705 BC.”
